I was a big fan of Jimmy Monkey when it opened. Very quirky, funky and the coffee was ohhhh sooooo gooooood. The food was great too! I went back a couple of days ago and was so so disappointed. There were more staff on the floor than I have ever seen before - which was great - but everything else... More

Fantastic coffee, roasted in-house, especially when the Slayer machine is service. Very nice food at reasonable prices. The barristas and staff are all really cool. Nice quiet neighborhood setting and easy parking next door. We've been many times now and it is consistently perfect. Highly recommended!!!

Finally a decent, close to perfect short macchiato. Combine this with chilled industrial feel cafe & some good simple breakfast fare with some creative builds. The Hulk is great ... smashed avo + fetta + dekka ... you should add 2 poached eggs. Enjoy

Very nice decor in a quiet location, great place for local residents to hang out for a quiet morning. We saw a few single tables with people enjoying a book and a coffee by themselves. Service- forgettable at best. You order and pay at the counter & food is served to you. Beyond that, don't expect anything more. Our server... More

I love this place for its quaint-ness. Out of the place (a short walk from One North MRT) but convenient if you have a car. Good place to chill out on a weekend afternoon but it might be a bit crowded to get some reading done. Absolutely love the washrooms as it was decorated so beautifully with bookshelves (my absolute... More

A refreshing and highly satisfying antidote to 'chain' coffee shops. Quirky, cool, GREAT staff and -seriously - the best coffee in Singapore. You actually get a buzz from even a standard drink, which tells you all you need to know about the quality. Worth finding

It was a disappointing breakfast. Had the breakfast of champions, the ribeye steak was tough and bland. Sausage was salty. Having said that coffee was great.

We went there on a saturday morning - the place was packed full and the server told us to sit at the lounge corner while we wait for an available table - we were first in line. Soon a large group of patrons left, and the server went up to clear the table. Then a bunch of new patrons entered... More

I use the term 'wicked' to describe the flavour of the coffee as well as tempting you to have that extra one or two cups you otherwise wouldnt have, which result in you laying awake late at night staring at the ceiling, damning that 'wicked flavour'. The owner is always there, extremely passionate and always trying to perfect what he... More

Place was crowded. There wasn't a table for 6 of us so had to split. The whole decor and ambience brought back find memories of our visit to Melbourne cafes. Mocha and latte were very smooth, very smooth. The sourdough to share was excellent, crunchy yet chewy and tasty. We were greedy and ordered the blueberry muffin which was also... More

Nestled in the lush greenery of one-north, built within historic old army barracks, Jimmy Monkey is certainly a gem sparkling in nature. The décor at jimmy monkey boasts of raw and deconstructed elegance. Exposed beams and brickwork of the old original army barracks against new age furniture and equipment set the atmosphere of rustic urbanization. The visual spectacle of coffee beans roasted, ground and made into a fresh cup of coffee can be observed at the Barista’s Bench, as trained baristas will pull shot after shot from the SlayerTM.Grab scrumptious brunch on the weekends, or lazy morning breakfasts in the weekdays. Delectable lunch and dinner served everyday too. Kick back, unwind, surf - all with your beverage of choice: coffee, tea, some wine and beer.
